Taking it to evaluate for Easy Hack
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2013-04-27 10:40:47 UTC
not reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

@Sasha: I would say that this issue was resolved in the meantime. 
Can you or anybody confirm this?  If yes, then I would propose to close this issue.

Note for other testers:
1. The first "Ctrl+V" mentioned in the attachment is a typing error, it means of course Ctrl+C.
2. The first mentioned icon from the toolbar has changed, it looks now different and is the RESTART NUMBERING function (it could be that you don't see it in the bottom toolbar, then you have to select the two arrows on the right of the bottom toolbar to open further functions from the toolbar).
3. The second mentioned icon is the DELETE ROW function (if you don't see it, then see point 2).

Thanks for additional testing
Reproduced bug in 4.0.2 on Fedora (RFR) 64 bit
Reproduced with attachment and with freshly created document

> The first "Ctrl+V" mentioned in the attachment is a typing error
Thanks for correction and sorry for my error

> The first mentioned icon from the toolbar has changed, it looks now different
In my case it is Galaxy theme of icons.

This has always been the case since LO / OOo 3.3.0

-> Version: Inherited from OOo
-> Importance, Severity: low / trivial

A table isn't even necessary to reproduce this; just delete any numbering list item at which numbering is restarted, and the restart is deleted together with the list item - which is understandable, as the restart is a property of ths list item, but still arguably not correct behaviour in terms of how people typically edit documents.
(Note that there is a perfectly good way to cancel the restart, which is just to "Restart Numbering" again at the position of the restart)

Reproducing with

Build ID: 5ea1b4c336d1cad92dc18e7cf7e4b381396f448b
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.10; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group

Is this a bug or is this intended because text:start-value="1" is part of the first text:list-item element of a list. Should LibreOffice move this attribute to the next list item when deleting the first item automatically?

Dear sasha.libreoffice,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
